The first part of John Harpers new short story 'Paradijs Lost' has arrived, tracking the exploits of Eve Walters in the Pleiadas System, which incidentally is the first core planetary system we'll be modelling in the revised alpha.
She arrived in a hurry, seemingly on the run, but who from? and just what is her crime? Find out more after the link!
"Eve flicked through her billfold. Her cards could be traced. Did she have any Pleiades cash? Her mind was a jumble, adrenaline and fear crushing any cogent thought that dared rise to the surface. She put some bills on the bar. They were PLC currency. Too much though, dammit. She pulled a twenty back. The ‘keeps hand enveloped the cash and slid back under the bar, the cash gone with it, then he moved to the rack of empty jugs. Perfect change, obviously."
